WOMEN’S WAY’s Change the Narrative Fellowship Program seeks to change the predominant narratives of women and poverty by using a women-led, bottom-up, intersectional approach that focuses on the voices and stories of diverse women with lived experiences of economic insecurity.

The fellowship trains and empowers women with the lived experience of economic insecurity to share their personal stories through professional-level audio, visual, and print. This year’s cohort was selected through Compass Working Capital’s Family Self Sufficiency Program, and we are excited to focus on the theme of housing and economic insecurity with them.

Ten remarkable women are part of the fellowship this year, and we are excited to introduce them to you:
